New Game: Nibbler Version 1.2 Released for iOS, Playstation Portable and PS Vita

Nibbler is, at its base, a Snake style game. For those not familiar with Snake games, the idea is pretty simple yet challenging and can be addictive. As you move your snake around the level, he will eat fruits and such, with each piece eaten, your snake will grow (usually one new link/section). The challenge comes to play as you get a longer, and longer, snake on the screen and have to avoid obstacles such as walls and even your own body in an effort to consume more fruits.

There is one catch though.

Avengers OpenBOR brawler

OpenBOR: Avengers: United Battle Continues Development

The Avengers are one of the Marvel teams that has kind of gotten the short end of the stick with games. Characters have gotten their own games from Captain America to the Incredible Hulk but as a team, the pickings have been slim (outside of the arcade game that is serving as source material for this game). The X-Men on the other hand have gotten plenty of chances at the money in your pocket (for games at least). Thanks to fans though, the Avengers are going to get another shot, this time using the OpenBOR engine.

Legena Union Tides

Kickstarter: Legena: Union Tides To Bring 16-Bit Style RPG’s Back

Everyone is probably familiar with the old “Boogeyman” story that parents have used for decades to get children to mind.

Also in the history of Legena is the death of a father at the hands of his son and a whole lot of evil, black, stuff that may not stay in the past.
